STOCKTON — Pacific Gas and Electric is seeking community feedback for potential transmission line routes and route options. The proposed Northern San Joaquin Power Connect project is designed to deliver safe, reliable, affordable and clean energy to customers throughout northern San Joaquin County.

The project includes the construction of two new transmission lines to connect PG&E’s existing Eight Mile and Lockeford substations with Lodi Electric Utility’s Industrial Substation, along with upgrades to and potential expansions of these substations.

Area residents will be able to learn more about the project and give feedback during a series of open houses in early December.

The open houses are:

  • December 6, 5–7 p.m.
    Woodbridge Elementary School, Multipurpose Room
    1290 Lilac St., Woodbridge
  • December 7, 1–4  p.m.
